Forest’s Under 18s secured a 3-2 win over Barnsley on Saturday.A disappointing first half display saw Steve Chettle’s men go in to the break 1-0 down, but Jake Mulraney levelled with his first goal for the club after the interval.
Wilfred Gnahore and Danny Elliott then both scored to turn the game dramatically in the visitors’ favour, before Forest conceded again with 15 minutes to go.
Academy director Nick Marshall said: “After their second, either team could have scored but we held on for a really good win. It was another inexperienced side as we rested several players for the Under 21 fixture.”
Team: Smith, Kamaneno, Ackroyd, Worrall, Sebastiao, Hollingsworth, Thomas (Worthington), Gnahore, Mulraney (Elliott), Petravicius, Otim
